Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre Clinical Research Fellowship 2019
Applications are invited for a Clinical Research Fellowship leading to a PhD. The Fellowship is available to medically qualified individuals who are undertaking their specialist training in any clinical discipline, and who want to obtain a PhD with a view to an academic career in any branch of cancer research. Eligibility to practice clinically within the UK is an essential qualification.
A Fellowship is available for 2019 in the CRUK Cambridge Centre.
Applicants must apply with an outlined project proposal.
Short-listed candidates will be invited to interview, at which their career intentions and PhD project proposal will be discussed. The successful applicant will subsequently develop a detailed project proposal with your host laboratory, prior to applying for admission as a PhD student to the University of Cambridge.
CRUK Cambridge Centre Clinical Research Fellowships are financed by Cancer Research UK and provide clinicians with funds to cover a full-time 3 year PhD degree. This includes a clinical salary and University Composition Fees at the 'UK/EU' rate. Overseas applicants may apply for these positions, and will usually be eligible to apply for the reduced staff University Composition Fee (UCF). This is one third of either the full- or part-time Home Student UCF, for all qualifying students, irrespective of whether they are classified as UK, EU or Overseas. Successful international applicants would be required to apply for the reduced staff UCF via their host department, and if they are not eligible they may be required to self-fund the cost difference between the two.
Overseas and UK/EU fees; this is approximately £18,408 per year for 3 years.
Short-listed applicants will be invited to interview w/b 6th May 2019. You will be interviewed by a panel of Principal Investigators from the CRUK Cambridge Centre and you will be given the opportunity to visit the relevant department(s) or institute(s) for your proposed project. We strongly encourage informal interaction between short-listed candidates and the Principal Investigators and their laboratories before the formal interview.
Award of the Fellowship is dependent on the successful applicant obtaining an offer of admission as a PhD student to the University of Cambridge.
Fixed-term: 3 years.
